Labour MP: ‘I Know Better Than My Constituents’
Ipswich residents don’t deserve patronising and condescending statements. They need an MP who will do their bit to help deliver Brexit and honours the democratic verdict they expressed in the summer of 2016.
Conservative candidate Tom Hunt calls on Ipswich Labour to respect referendum result!
Have the Ipswich Labour Party forgotten that just over two years ago almost 40,000 people in the Borough of Ipswich voted to leave the EU? Over 58% of those who voted in Ipswich voted to leave. Is that not a clear enough verdict from the people of Ipswich?
No Second Referendum
I do think it takes a certain brass neck to visit a Town where almost 40,000 people voted to leave the EU with a bus covered with such a message. Perhaps more appropriate for them to cover the bus with the message, “B******* to the 58.3%” or “B******* to what you voted for”.
Another busy month. There has been a strong education focus for me over the past four weeks with five visits to secondary schools in Ipswich. At each school I met with the head teacher to discuss the challenges facing their school and what their key concerns are.
Reflections on secondary school visits
The last four weeks for me have had a strong focus on education. All in all I’ve visited five secondary schools, meeting with the head teacher at each. These meetings have been extremely useful and have given me a real insight into the challenges there are within our schools.
Ipswich needs a northern relief road – here is how we can win the campaign
During the selection process to become the Conservative Prospective Parliamentary candidate for Ipswich I made clear my support for a northern relief road for Ipswich. I’m fully aware of how significant this issue is for Ipswich and the benefits that a new road could bring.
My First Month
“I’ve had a busy few weeks meeting people across the Town. Two weeks ago I published my website outlining my five top priorities for Ipswich: 1. Fighting for improvements to transport infrastructure 2. Increasing opportunities for young people 3. Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour 4. The town center 5. Health services and Ipswich Hospital.
Budget 2018 Response
Conservative Prospective Parliamentary candidate for Ipswich, Tom Hunt, has today welcomed yesterday’s budget statement by Chancellor of the Exchequer, Phillip Hammond. However he has also stated that it must be made to work for Ipswich.
The overwhelming transport infrastructure priority for Ipswich is a northern relief road. Over the past month it’s been made clear to me whoever I’ve spoken to just how important this is for the Town. The reality is that this infrastructure should have been delivered 20/30 years ago but it hasn’t and the people of Ipswich have paid the price for this through increasing levels of traffic.
The Government are doing some good work to promote apprenticeships. There have been some challenges with the way the apprenticeship levy works but I’m confident these can be ironed out.
